I EQ'd this show and turned up the volume with hard limiting, balancing the channels as I went, particularly during set 1. I did a little noise reduction using the hiss from the beginning of disc 1 as a sample. There were numerous cuts between songs, again particularly during set 1, that I crossfaded to smooth out the flow of the show. The original version of this had the 2 songs at the end of disc 2 repeated on disc 3. I cut this repeated material right at the first note of The Other One. All in all a particularly good bootleg for 1979, IMHO. Leave it to the Deadheads. They really know how to tape.

Read the 3 previous reviews to date.
Check out the notes from eywood
This is a sweet recording.
The show must go on!
This caught my attention because after Europe 72
there were not too many shows that I can remember that feature both a Dark Star and Other One same night.
(there is that NYE 78 show which tripped me out in a big way----
great to see the video of that show)
Anyway not even trying to compare this to Europe 72 or even the 78 NYE, just saying they pull out both the Star and TOO.
Also noticed that Garcia seems to defer to Weir on the song selection this evening, 12 Weir tunes (bakers's dozen if you count Other One sandwich) and 7 for Garcia.(one of which is Dark Star)
Also LOSER in the 2nd set is a nice change of pace and they stretch out and explore it then drop it on a dime.
(Always one of my favorite Garcia tragedy tunes right up there with FOTD for irony.)
I noticed the pitch of Jerry's voice makes his backing vocals really stand out--examples-Jack Straw, Estimated
note: this coupled with No Donna Jean seems to open up some vocal space for both Weir & Garcia
and like when Donna was on maternity it gives the band room to stretch out.
Keith hypnotic on the bottom end of the jam but sporadic
Wow, Phil bringing the Other One like a Volcano!
Just gonna enjoy the rest of this 💁
Subject: '79 Buffalo
Subject: Beautiful sounding recording
Subject: Great upgrade. Overlooked period and show
Keith's chop keys are easily ignorable, as we all know, he tenure with the band would come to an end shortly. Donna left the tour two dates early and nothing from this show lacks from her absence.
Standout versions of Stagger Lee, Jack A Roe, Estimated, and Other 1 wrap around Drums. This is one of those gems that people often overlook since only audience tapes circulate, but this upgrade is well worth the listen/download. Rhythm Devils and Jerry are WAY up front in this recording. Great Billy & Mickey.
Thanks for this.
